The main characters are Vito and Wilhelm which names mean full of life and strong-willed warrior.

We are developing The Reward into a series (along with a comic and DnD campaign book) you can see the now finished campaign at:

The Reward was made at The Animation Workhop. It is directed by Mikkel Mainz and Kenneth Ladekjer, Bros for life. See end credits for the team :) We now made Sun Creature Studio, a company made to bring you more series and films like this (Together with Bo Juhl). For more about The Reward:

Rated 5 / 5 stars June 20, 2013

its unusual to feel such an emotion after watching a film here on newgrounds, but this was one of those animations that stand out and for that very reason.

well animated, one of the best storylines, and above all, it has an amazing spirit

Fun easter egg, the kids at the end are also in the beginning scene

Definitely five stars. Was looking around Newgrounds for the first time in a while since I was waiting for a game to download, and movies like this are the reason I stayed here in the first place. You have done a superb job at animating this, showing the growth of friendship over time, and just demonstrating how well things ought to be made. You have my applause, and definitely earned five stars.

Because it's not the Reward at the end, it's the rivers you cross to get there. The Journey you take that makes you who you are, and the reward is really who you become at the end. This has to be one of my most favorite submissions on Newgrounds, and I severely regret not watching it sooner. All my 5's are belong to this. I would love to see this go further.

5/5, for animation / story / originality (monsters / environnement, i particulary loved the bambou giant thing).
